Unprecedented economic growth is putting heavy pressure on natural resources in Asia-Pacific resulting in worsening water quality, air pollution, land degradation and waste generation; threatening human and environmental health and costing the economy billions. Smarter, greener and cleaner investment of around US $2.5 trillion a year can transform the region into a hub for sustainability. Without climate-oriented, greener development policies, over 100 million people in Asia-Pacific could be forced into extreme poverty by 2030, wiping out poverty reduction gains achieved over the last decade.

So, are we moving in the right direction? Fast enough? Soon enough?

Top international experts and investors lay out the facts and debate options.
